A poem about a person worrying about what to give on Valentine's day and who to give a gift to. The person soon discoveres what the best gift to give is.
Tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day, oh me, oh my
I need to find a special something to buy
And for whom? For whom indeed?
Someone special in mind is what I need
For girlfriend, or buddy, or sister or grandmother?
For parents, or teacher, or auntie, or brother?
My Valentine’s hopes are beginning to sink
Which is the one that with my heart links?
Yes, its my auntie, its decided for sure
Now what should I buy her? Something to ensure my feelings are not obscure
Something that can’t make her say “Is there any more?”
But something that will touch her heart to the core
Some chocolates, some flowers, a purse, a cake?
Something expensive, luxurious of beautiful make?
So the whole day I spend searching for a gift
From shop to shop I shift
In the end I left the gift shopping behind
And pondered the right thing to do in my mind
Tomorrow morning I knew buying a gift I had missed
But on my aunt’s cheek I gave her a kiss
And the next thing I did was from my heart
Not from my wallet or the shopping mart
I gave a warm smile and knew what to do
I said: “Happy Valentine’s day Auntie! I love you!”
